Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy

This club believes that when dealing with children and vulnerable adults, their welfare should always be of paramount importance. We are committed to providing an environment where young people can learn and participate in a sport free from harassment and abuse. All those people working with children have a moral responsibility to safeguard and promote a child’s welfare.

This club has therefore adopted a Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy to ensure peace of mind for both adults and children”
